Private landlords - Accreditation Scheme

Tenant surveys and property inspections

Landlord Accreditation Scheme carry out tenant surveys on a random sample of 10% of accredited properties. Property inspections are carried out where:

  • a tenant has raised a complaint with LAS and can provide evidence that the property fails the "Below Tolerable Standard" test verified by Environmental Health; and
  • the Private Rented Housing Panel has issued a Repairs Enforcement Order.  In these circumstances LAS would first liaise with the landlord to try and resolve the issues.
